Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hey, I plan on taking the Foreign Service Officer exam once I get back from China this summer, and I'm pretty well-read on current events and international relations/politics (my major political science / journalism), I'm kind of hazy on the side of economics.
I want to remedy this.
Are there any good economics/macroeconomic papers/articles/books that I should invest in and read? I would prefer to start simple, because I'm really not sure how to gauge my knowledge on how that crazy economy-thing works.
Bonus points if it is obtainable in 'read online or download' kind of way. Finding English books outside of pop fiction is super difficult in this country.
